Kyrgyzstan crisis kicks off

I was wondering a couple of weeks back why no one seems to be interested in the protests in Kyrgyztan. Well, against all expectations the opposition protestors seem to be getting somewhere:

“The opposition in Kyrgyzstan says it has taken control of the capital, Bishkek, after overrunning the president’s palace.”

This could turn nasty… But, fresh from their Orange Revolution (see “Ukraine” section to the right), the new Ukrainian government has offered to step in as intermediaries.

Watch this space.
